Explore literature in its most modern context alongside film theory and criticism in this Joint Honours degree.

The BA (Hons) in English and Film degree will deepen your interest, understanding and knowledge of important texts, genres and concerns in modern literature from across a wide and diverse area of cultural studies, including: popular culture, genre fiction and film, adaptation studies, TV studies, new media, creative writing, critical psychology, and socially-relevant modules examining cultural representations of crime, urbanism, ecology, global conflict, and more.

You'll explore genre, narrative, adaptation, film technology, documentary, experimental filmmaking and contemporary trends in film theory and criticism. You'll have the opportunity to study film and literature side by side, across a range of modules and delve into debates around issues of genre, gender and practice. Module choices in creative writing and screenwriting will allow you to apply your understanding of literature and film to your own creative work. 

How You’ll Be Taught
Academic modules are taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials and independent study. Some of your film modules are taught at the Screen Academy Scotland.


All your modules are assessed by coursework, including: essays; presentations; creative writing options; reading diaries; online writing activities, such as blogs and discussions. There are no formal sit-down exams on modules offered by the English teaching team.
